It Follows (2014)

482955

A young woman is followed by an unknown supernatural force after a sexual encounter. (IMDb)
The style is more memorable than the substance (despite the uniquely discomforting premise rooted in teenage sexuality), but this speaks mostly to the incredible atmosphere created by the former through a simply superb spooky-synth score (listen especially to the walk to the pool) and a vaguely retro adult-less Americana suburb setting, gorgeously captured in striking colour, with plenty of creeper zooms and mesmerizing tracking shots that help craft the film’s brand of (literally) slow horror.
8/10 (Great)

  1. This has got to be one of the best horror films in recent memory (if it weren’t for The Witch, I’d consider it THE best). The pacing and camerawork really build an incredibly unsettling atmosphere that you just don’t see in the genre nowadays. Nice work, man!
